Went for the 3 course special. Two items from the apps were not available. Ordered the steak special medium rare and it came out well, and was cut in 1 “ thick slices. We were asked if we wanted it redone. We declined.

Drinks and food at the bar was very very good. Bourbon glazed wings were great. We ordered them crisp and that’s exactly how they came out.

Service at both the bar and restaurant was very good.

Outdoor dining for dinner was set up very nice. White tablecloths and soft music.

Will try it again.

I was looking for a good steak house and Char was rated on a list of the best in the Hudson Valley. Sorry to say, it fell way short of our expectations.

Always a good time out at Char! We always get excited to be greeted warmly, served a nice drink to start, and the food never disappoints. Love the Asian calamari and baked clams to start, and the dumplings! So good!
The service is always incredible as well. Lauren and Michael are always so great. Thanks all!

Table was ready when we arrived. Server was overly nice. Salad was really good, fresh lettuce and not overly dressed. Main entree arrived and was exactly as we had ordered. A little under seasoned but overall a very good meal. Only reason I’m not giving them a five is the server was over the top. Actually annoying in his mannerisms and was animated when he spoke. My wife called him “creepy”

We had the best waiter, his name was Mike , I was so impressed that he took the time to look at my reservation and then address us by name . I felt like we had known him , this made for a very comfortable evening. Kudos to you Mike. Thanks again, Tracey & Joe

It’s just ok. If you looking for a special occasion, look somewhere else. Music was loud and didn’t match the atmosphere. People were loud too. Food was ok but way overpriced. I tried 3 different wines and I didn’t like one. The place is just ok but I paid too much for what I got. The fireplace was nice, though. I wouldn’t recommend this place, unless you have no other options.

Excellent food; spot on with reservation time. Service a little slow. Not servers fault. Night before Valentines Day so a little crowded and believe a small gathering going on also. Worth the wait!

We went for Valentine's Day, we are always happy with the food but the parking situation will make us hesitant to come back, we had to circle at least ten times, basically their parking lot does not accomadate their capacity and there are no other parking options, everything else was great

It’s a very nice place. It was extremely crowded and had to wait at 15-20 even though I had a reservation. The steaks 🥩 are huge. The crab cakes were good too.

Enjoying Char more by the visit. Desiree is great in the bar area, and the wait staff and bartenders are all friendly there. Diverse menu and quality is great. Love the app choices.
Also love the different foods, like the Asian calamari and Grilled Octopus. Also, you feel safe there. Social distanced and clean.

A very enjoyable night out with my wife. Good service, food was delicious. I was happy my table was near the fireplace. My only disappointment was they did not have the dry aged steak once again. This has happened a couple times.

Absolutely fantastic. Nicki our server was amazing, the owners were so friendly. We were celebrating my son’s acceptance into college and they could not have made a bigger deal out of us. It was an amazing experience. The food was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to go back there again. Thank you all for making our night great. And for helping us celebrate.

Enjoyed completely! Our waitress , Nikki was excellent ! The dinner was great for both of us 👍. My husband accidentally received a potato with scallions and he can’t eat them. It was replaced easily and quickly with a plain one. We enjoyed the Char Restaurant completely. Dessert was nice too . Will definitely go back.
